From the Delta County Independent (Hank Lohmeyer):
The $2 million “principal forgiveness loan” for Orchard City’s West Side main transmission line project got three unanimous town board approvals, as expected, during the July 14 trustee meeting. The three separate resolutions adopted by the board were requirements for getting the loan deal closed.
The town had been applying for a $2 million low-interest loan and was surprised to learn three weeks ago that it had qualified for a federal government funded program that converted the loan into a grant. The federal program is administered through the Environmental Protection Agency and utilizes funds from the $787 billion stimulus enacted by Congress last year.
